[MWC15] New-look Galaxy S6 Best Samsung Ever?

Samsung goes all-out with the Galaxy S6 and the S6 Edge, as they aim to woo back customers with a commitment to premier quality. The new with significant changes from the prior Galaxy series. The Galaxy S5 last year was a flop, as Samsung struggled to position itself against Apple and new entrants such as Xiaomi, which between the two, dominated both the high end and budget market.

Galaxy S6 Finally Offers a Befitting Premium Experience

Taking a cue from Samsung unibody Galaxy Alpha range, the new Galaxy S6 series sports a metal frame, with glass front and back panel for a polished, professional finish. For those complaining about the plastic finish and the cheap feeling it exudes, that has now been addressed. The Galaxy S6 goes one step further with a distinctive curve to the side of it’s front and rear glass, which blends in very well to the phone design. Unlike the Note Edge, which looks weird due to the asymmetric design, the Galaxy S6 Edge actually looks pretty good. The curves on both side of the S6 Edge creates an almost bezel-less screen, with an immersive viewing experience. The S6 Edge is definitely the far better looking sibling.

Samsung spared no expense when it came to materials that they could use in the new phones. The front and rear glass panels are Gorilla Glass 4, and the metal frame is significantly nicer than the plastic used on Samsung’s prior phones. With Samsung competing in the high-end market, they needed to demonstrate that the phone itself exudes quality. Against the like of Apple, HTC, Sony, and Google Nexus line, it was important that Samsung adopted a premium material to ensure they compete on an equal footing. The plastic material can be left for the more budget-conscious folks.
